IT Support | Is Your Small Business More at Risk Than Large?
by Mark, "The Mind", Sarro.
In short, the answer is no. In a study put together by McAfee and the London-based Bloor Research titled “The Security Paradox” it was found that half of the 1,100 companies surveyed (51 to 1,000 employees) had encountered more security based incidents over the past year. In addition, 40 percent of the companies surveyed admitted to suffering data breaches, accounting for a 13 percent increase over the previous year. Furthermore, about 1/3 of the organizations surveyed reported that they suffered multiple attacks; half of which were considered serious enough to require up to 5 hours of investigation and systems restoration.
In an interview with Cari Jaquet, the director of solutions marketing for McAfee she stated that 58% of businesses spend less than three hours a week on security. A number that has dropped from 65% from the previous year... The economic climate has certainly played its part in contributing to that statistic, but when you stop and think about it: how much money are you saving when you suffer a security breach and have to spend the money for investigation and repair? What about the time lost from a lack of productivity? The impact of such an event can affect a business for years to come.
